Excuse me but this is FUD !
SSG is certainly not propriatary in any reasonable man's vocabulary !!
The sggestion that FGFS who's native format is SSG would be somehow
limited by using the native SSG load function esp. given there is an 'editable'
model in the format of the Editor application that created the model is
'bordering' on FUD.
FWIW If and when FlightGear exchanges SSG for another internal
SceneGraph I would suggest using that SceneGraph's native loaders
Perhaps we would all get along better if we only spoke Esparanto
outside of our homes also :-)
Merry Christmas all,
